Hi Subbareddy,

Can any other user access the same element once the element is signed out?

The other user cannot change the element, but he can use it, if the element is signed out.

Retrofit is nothing but updation of the changes made in the program.

Suppose a Program X is changed and in the status that it is not moved to production. - CHANGE 1

At this point of time another request may be required in the same program X - CHANGE 2.

The issue is that CHANGE 1 goes first to production and CHANGE 2 comes the next.

So now, if you checkout program A from production you might have the older version and implementation of CHANGE 2 later may not contain the changes made in CHANGE 1.

Now instead changes made in CHANGE 1 program A has to be considered for CHANGE 2. This is called as retrofitting.

FYI,
For the below sentence posted by senman
"So now, if you checkout program A from production you might have the older version and implementation of CHANGE 2 later may not contain the changes made in CHANGE 1. "

Endevor will not allow U to checkout the same program A if it is already checked-out or signed out by some other person.
Based on the Priority of the two changes, the relevant person has to code/move his/her changes first to production and then the other pseron can checkout the latest version from endevor and add his changes.

Say if ur task is of high priority then the person who already signed out the element from Endevor should Sign-in the element to ur ID and then U can make ur changes.
Cool isn't it.

Changeman doesn't have such option I guess. all the retrofiting is done in one region. Each programmer can make his own version of the same program in Development
